This chicken was good. I liked the flavors, but it was a little on the dry side. The sides were also decent. You certainly got a lot of food for the price, though!

El Pollon, Ranson WV

Mmm, I love Peruvian rotisserie chicken. This was very flavorful, but the breast meat was a bit dry. That’s what I get for opting for the white meat. I loved the sides though, especially the onion and tomato salad. The fried yuca was also good and not greasy.

Cebiche mixto – La Mar Cebicheria Peruana

Happy hour $6
La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, San Francisco CA

This place is a mad house during happy hour! It’s filled with a mixture of tourists strolling the Embarcadero and the FiDi after-work crowd. I was able to squeeze in at the end of the bar and had a yummy (and nicely priced) snack before meeting my nephew for dinner down the street. The ceviche was good albeit small. I liked the assortment of ingredients and everything tasted really fresh. The pisco sour was also very tasty and much needed after a long day at work.

Roasted chicken & yuca fries – Limon Rotisserie

Roasted chicken yuca fries Limon Rotisserie

“Pollo a la Brasa”.  Savory free-range 1/4 chicken (breast and wing) slowly roasted over open flame.  Served with two sides and “Aji” sauces. $8.50
Limon Rotisserie, San Francisco

For my sides, I chose the yuca fries and tacu-tacu (Peruvian rice) and both were delicious.  The roasted chicken was absolutely delicious and oh so tender and juicy!  Omg, and I can’t believe it only cost $8.50 for the chicken and 2 sides.  What a steal!  That’s what I call dining deliciously on a budget!  The restaurant is kind of randomly located in the Mission, but I’m definitely coming back for the yummy food and great service.

Aji sauces Limon Rotisserie

Aji sauces.  I’m not sure what all the sauces were, but they were SO good!  Normally aji sauce is bright green and is put through a blender, but none of these fit that description.  No worries, I used them for the chicken and the yuca fries. Noms!
